And equally amazing that fixing the deficit by the most obvious means - increasing taxes - is completely off the table for said supporters. The irony is, the Koch brothers and their ilk are smart enough to run a business, but they are backing economic theories that totally don't test out in the real world, and that wouldn't likely have beneficial effects even for the 1%, at least long term.
